I need MS Core fonts to use them with XeLaTeX. I do NOT want them anywhere else.
I tried two ways to get these fonts:
msttcore-fonts-installerfrom http://mscorefonts2.sourceforge.net (because fetchmsttfonts was not available)
AFAIK both do the same: download MS's *.exe files, extract them to get *.ttf, and install those *.ttf system wide. After that, XeLaTeX works, so that's fine.
However, for some reason these new fonts instantly infect my desktop. Before the installation process is even finished, all my Firefox/Leafpad/Terminal fonts are switched to the freshly downloaded ones.
I find this utterly baffling. Why in the world installing a font automatically switches the whole system to it? Is there a way to just install the fonts and keep the desktop untouched?
My OS is OpenSuSE 13.2/42.1 (on different machines), DE is XFCE.
